Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Some People Do Survive

--by dutchie, posted Nov 9, 2012

Inspired by this site, I let the woman behind me in the line at the check-out go first because she looked sick. She then told me she had been diagnosed with a brain tumor that very morning! 

We talked a bit. I told her to stay strong and that some people do survive a brain tumor. I didn't tell her my mom just past away from the same thing. Then I paid for her groceries. 
She teared up and gave me a big hug. Even the cashier and other people in the line had tears in their eyes. I felt it was the least I could do for her.
